I admit I did not think of the 1st April when I saw it... Thought some crackers replaced the frontpage or messed with DNS entrys..

First and foremost, I've been drinking. I am drunk.

Second: I opened ATS from my smartphone..but I saw a bunch of dancing squirrels and rodents.

I shouldn't be posting this--this isn't a thread.

Anyone else???

Ha, so today logged in -I'm new here by the way- for the first time, and all that pops up for a few moments is the .gov seized screen... that threw me for a loop.

Hi, everyone!

That was a great one ATS (seized prank).

You guys are alllright. Still does not dismiss you guys from being a bunch of shills and disinfo/intelligence collection agents..

Got me, and got me good.
That song has been on repeat in my head for hours now.

Classic internet.
Perfect prank!

Yup, signed in on my mobile which I rarely ever do...saw a bunch of dancing rodents.

It was instantly obvious to me that a "site seizure" was not happening. However, I was fooled for some moments into thinking, my PC must have gotten a virus!

Now, my login screen met me with rows of dancing cartoon animals or something, and I thought:

It is like at a Grateful Dead show; they would put images on the bigscreen of dancing bears marching along in similar fashion.
